Delta Law Enforcement Brightens 6-Year-Old Cancer Patient’s Day
Now for a change of scenery, here's a heart-warming story made possible by Delta law enforcement agencies.
There is plenty of alarming news going around right now, but here's one that should warm the cockles of your heart and make you feel proud of the law enforcement officers serving us in western Colorado.
Three different law enforcement agencies in Delta County recently visited Archer, a 6-year-old cancer patient and gave him a day he will never forget.
Archer had a Wilms tumor and had to have a kidney removed. He's done 13 days of radiation and will undergo 7 months of chemotherapy. Doctors and nurses have told the family he's stronger than any patient they have ever had.
As it turns out, Archer is a big fan of law enforcement - and was surprised by a visit from the Delta County Sheriff's Office, the Colorado State Patrol, and the Delta Police Department K-9 unit.
Archer got to see the inside of the police vehicles and got the chance to feed Raico, the Delta PD's K-9. One of the officers found out that pepperoni pizza was Archer's favorite food and so they took some pepperoni pizzas with extra pepperoni for him to enjoy with his family. They also gave him a police bear that sings Bad Boys, which happens to be Archer's favorite song.
What a great move by these law enforcement officers to take the time to make a huge difference in the life of a little boy. This is definitely a day that Archer and his family will never ever forget. Kudos to the law enforcement officers of Delta County.
